Calvin and Hobbes
by Bill Watterson
Synopsis from Goodreads: In November 1985, the magic of Calvin and Hobbes first appeared on the funny pages, introducing the world to a wondrous pair of friends. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this distinguished partnership between a six-year-old boy and his (sometimes) stuffed tiger, Watterson has prepared a special book, which shares his thoughts on cartooning and is illustrated throughout with black-and-white and color cartoons.
What I think: Without question Calvin and Hobbes is the greatest comic ever written. I think what makes this collection so good is that it goes beyond just being funny. The friendship between a little boy and his stuffed tiger is touching and genuine. This is one of my very favorite Calvin and Hobbes images. It represents why I love the book so much.
ps. Guess what inspired me to name my cat Calvin?
